    Guys heads up, got to nicely wake up to see my account go into the red. Pay close attention to how much you spent and how much is in your account. The hotel is adding charges and fees.

    Hey guys this is Knuckleshy as you can tell from my icon and as you may have seen up on EQD this morning I am going to be checking in on you guys. Any word on the cost of everyone's charges for the hotel bills and possible dent we have made so far as far as the musicians who preformed out there and how much there is left so for the latter I kinda need to hear from TAPS if possible.

    The con in itself was great. The organizers - not so much.

    I was so glad to have had the opportunity to attend my first MLP:FiM Convention! Even when it came to the whole system of rooming with Bronies I've either never or barely met before, it was such a nice and well-kept experience. Going to the convention really gave me so much more to appreciate about the people who work on the show (VA's and Staff), along with being a supportive fan. I'd never imagine I'd be given the opportunity to meet a big chunk of the cast, let alone mingle with them casually. Now regardless of the good things, I will admit there were some downfalls. The first to start off was the whole fire alarm incident, which ended up ending one of the VA panels early (I actually found it hilarious more than suck-ish). Then there was the Private Dinner where it was unorganized (no assigned seating as stated on the site). Then there was the reorganization on Sunday which threw quite a handful of things off (minus autographs).

    Other than that, I still say BEST CON EVER!

    February 26, 2013

      and the whole thing getting shut down early and all the bronies double charged for their rooms and none of the talents "Covered" rooms being paid for. lol

      February 26, 2013

    • DrSentenial

      I have been staying in close contact with my bank, and with all said and done I am only being charged the original amount promised for my room with the basic room deal that the convention offered.
      I obviously have no idea if this happened for everyone with single-person rooms, but things somehow either didn't reach this far down the totem pole or it was only the fully comped rooms and the super-big advertized limited # room deals, not the small basic room deals.

      February 26, 2013

  • Nick H.

    Well... that was quite an experience.

    1 · February 25, 2013

    With no con to compare it to, i cant say it was bad or good. I did have a good time with meeting several of you guys, and of course more bronies from other areas. Looking forward to more meets in the future, and definitely for EQLA. Hoping to put together a NLR soldier cosplay before then.

      It was the worst event I have ever been to. The community was it's only saving grace. All those poor people who are out hundreds and the ones who are our thousands from it make it the worst event ever.

    OH. MY. GOD. Was that, or was that not, THE Best Con EVAR?! It was so much fun and I met so many cool people and to top it all off it was organized and everything ran so smoothly! I especially enjoyed how absolutely none of the panels where interupted by alarms or anything like them! Also the lack of alcohol abuse was definitely a breath of fresh air, as opposed to the rest of the strip! Booze? Yucky! I can't WAIT to go again next year! <3

    Beside the fact that Sunday was a total bomb, I actually had a fun time with meeting bronies I knew & new bronies, meeting VAs I haven't seen up until this weekend, and swagging it up at the vendor hall.

    It's a shame how things went, but at the end of it all, I believe the good outweighed the bad for this weekend.

      February 21, 2013

  • Christian D.

    Alright everyone listen up.

    This is what I got going on. I got a villa on the strip and getting confirmation tonight and latest tomorrow. The rate I will charge everyone is $20 and the villa can hold up to 8 people. I have myself, Peter, Daniel, Hank, And Eric that were wanting a room. If anyone else wants in let me know. The villa is at The Polo Tower so it's about a 15 min walk or a 2 min drive there.

    For carpool this is what I know from all various sources XD
    Daniel ad I are working out were we will be taking a van, or if not ill be taking my truck there. Peter should go with Ryan because if I'm having to drive I have to drive a bit away to pick up Daniel. I'll confirm this with Ryan, and if we take the van we can take an additional 3 people.

      Hey, since I won't be arriving on the day everyone else is, I'll probably need a phone number or something so I can get in contact with someone when I do arrive. So I'll know what room to go to and all that.

But for now I have no place to stay so if someone has a spot for me to sleep somewhere that would be cool! If not, I will probably get my own and then let people get in on that.

      @Brett If you could get to Anaheim for when we leave that day, that would be perfect for both Louis and I. What are your plans for returning though? Still fine with arriving in Anaheim or would you need to be dropped off in Oceanside?

    Update: Alright, currently have 4 people total planning on staying in the room, so 2 more bed spots remain. As I've said on the sheet, the more people that come, the cheaper it is for everyone.

    Thanks to EQD for letting me know this, the prices of the rooms will go up after January 27th, so I'll be sure to book the room before then.

    As a side note, I'm currently in transition with work/school, but I'm confident I can go to this event still, just not absolutely 100% sure. I'll be sure to let those who are affected know as soon as anything may or may not happen.

    Also, as a side question, is anyone willing to pick me up that lives near Anaheim? If not, I'll arrange travels myself and for those who may want to carpool with me instead.

    January 17, 2013

    • Kage E.

      Talking to reception, though. They say after 4 guests in the room, they start adding fees.

      I can see that, but it's typical for things to be less stringent during cons and even for trips to Vegas. I've been there 3 times with more people than what we reserved for, and I had no issues with the hotel. If things get rowdy, I can see the hotel having more of a reason to exercise that right.

      January 25, 2013

    i only have $400 to go. is that enough?

    January 22, 2013

    Ok, really considering going now, just need to know what people that live locally in Anaheim are willing to come along/pitch in for gas/room and such. If I get a good turn-out, I'll post on the respective carpool and room sheets!

    January 9, 2013

    • Len R.

      Question in regards to rooming. If I were to arrive on the night of Friday like at around 11PM, would I still be able to maintain the spot I'd claim if going? Since I'm on a strict budget, I was thinking of going with the $20 full stay deal (not confirmed, but in planning).

      January 13, 2013

    • A former member
      A former member

      @Louis If you have no other options, PLEASE put your info in the Room sheet document, that way you can claim your stake!

      @Len It'll depend on how many people end up being in the room. The split price listed takes into account that 6 people would be staying in the room, so keep that in mind. Once we start closing in on the date of the con, I'll give a final payment amount due for everyone, so it could be as follows:

      1 (FOREVER ALONE): $200 ea.
      2: $100 ea.
      3: $65 ea.
      4: $50 ea.
      5: $45 ea. (bed), $20 ea. (floor)
      6: $40 ea. (bed), $20 ea. (floor)

    Alright, updated the Room sheet list with my room information. I haven't ACTUALLY gotten the room yet, but as soon as I get responses, I will purchase the rooms officially as we get closer to the con date.

    As far as a ride, I am still interested in anyone offering an Anaheim pickup. If not, I may organize something myself as it gets closer to the con date.

    I might try my luck with the carpool/room sharing. I'm 18, I already have a ticket (I hate you Thunderlane) and Omnipony is going to be there. A very strong combination in favor of me going.

    I'm going to do my best to go! It'd be really fantastic to make it, and even more so if certain plans go through! Kinda relying on a friend(s), but I'm hoping it'll work out!

    It is a very firm maybe. It will depend on a lot of things, but I'm gonna try!
